As long as I’m not on my way to work, or going out, or in a hurry, rain can be one of my favourite things. The house I grew up in had stone gutters and laying in bed listening to torrential rain was perfect. (If not depressingly bleak)

The current bad weather is making me want some of the things that have been on my list all winter even more. A cable knit, oversized cardigan, a fur hat, some granny boots and a cameo brooch.
